Texas Lesbian Shooter Sketch Revised

 

Hey all:

Just a quick hit up. According to news outlets, Kristene Chapa has been discharged from the hospital. She is the sole survivor of the hate motivated (cause c’mon we know that’s what’s up) attack on her and her girlfriend in Portland Texas.

There’s been a donation page set up to help the family. This young lady has a lot of rehab therapy she has to go through as a result of this crime: https://www.wepay.com/donations/127673

She’s also helped police put together a new sketch of the suspect they need to nab for this. Here it is:

Urgent: Have You Seen This Man?

Hey all:

Please pass this around the internet and reblog it as fast as you can. Hopefully someone has seen this man and we can get him caught quick. He’s the main suspect right now in the shooting of that young lesbian couple. I’ll let GetEqual TX explain:

Portland, TX – on June, 22nd 2012 Mollie Olgin and Kristene Chapa were gunned down in a park. Mollie died on the scene. Kristene is hospitalized and recovering. Witnesses describe the suspect as being a white male in his 20s with brown hair and a thin build standing 5 feed 8 inches tall weighing 140 pounds. If you recognize the suspect, you are asked to call the Portland Police Department at 361-777-4444

Suspect In Murder of Texas Teen Couple

Look Inside Umpqua Bank

It’s been awhile since I talked about banks. A couple of weeks ago, I took some pics of the inside lobby of the Umpqua branch I usually bank at. They’re up on Capitol Hill, on Broadway by All Pilgrims Church.

First, they have three wireless stations. I couldn’t take a picture, because all three were in use, and I didn’t want to invade people’s privacy. But you can just come in, sit down, and use the wireless at my bank. I don’t think you have to have an account there to do it either.

And when you stop by the bank, you can have some coffee or tea.

Have a cup!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then, just a few feet down from the coffee bar is the golden “bat phone”. I don’t know what they really call it. It’s gold color, and you can reach anyone in a department by picking up the receiver and pressing a single button. And I do mean anyone. Seriously. Pressing 8 will connect you to the bank president.

I haven’t tried it yet. Behold the bat phone for yourself:

Call Us!

 

 

Really, Call Us!

So that’s a quick look inside my new bank. Coffee, wireless, and their very own bat phone. 🙂 Remember, they also give me chocolate every time I deposit money. What’s not to like?

I know I left Well’s Fargo for moral reasons, but the coolness factor at my bank is also worth it. If you haven’t moved to a new bank yet, I highly recommend Umpqua. If you are worried about not having unlimited access to ATMs, ask yourself: how often you get cash at ATMs? If you’re like me, you get more of your cash back at registers during daily activities.

Seriously. It’s time to realize that money is much more accessible than it used to be. ATMs are not the key to cash anymore: your pin number is. Our money moves faster than we do, and no one should charge us to hold onto it. These are things it’s taken me years to learn, and there’s so much more I don’t understand.

Do yourself a favor. Experiment with your mobility. Open a secondary, online only bank account. Switch to a credit union or local bank. Try something to shake up the idea that “bricks and machines” are vital to financial existence. It’s scary, but worth it.

Umpqua Branches Update

Ok, I didn’t look hard enough. My bank has WAY more than two branches. They’re all over Washington, Oregon, Nevada, and Northern California. In Seattle alone they have about 15 branches, around one branch in each neighborhood.
